[quote=bengal_fan]… so to automatically assume because it was founded by a protestant (in this case bill bright, a wonderful man who has never taken sides for one denomination over another and is only concerned with people coming to an experience with Christ and then growing in that faith) that it is anti-catholic is dangerous and divisive.
Why don’t we let Mr. Bright speak for himself. A recent article from the Catholic Educators Resource concerning the signing of the ecumenical document *Catholics And Evangelicals Together * quotes many anti-Catholic Evangelical leaders as criticizing Evangelical signers of the document, including Bill Bright. Bright’s rationale for signing the document, however, was less than pure:
*"Other endorsers have emphasized the opportunity ECT provides for presenting the Gospel to Catholics. Commenting on his meeting with his evangelical detractors, Bill Bright wrote to his supporters that ECT “facilitated our evangelism in Catholic countries.” He argued that removing his name from the document could result in the loss of salvation for many Catholic souls: “Since the ECT Statement had already helped us reach more Catholics in other countries, the Holy Spirit brought tears to my eyes before these men [McArthur and Sproul] as I explained that repudiating the agreement would probably cause tens of millions of Catholics to not hear the gospel and to be eternally lost.”
Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ International, in fact, has targeted Spain for mission work. One wonders if Campus Crusaders will remember ECT’s distinction between legitimate evangelization and sheep-stealing?" *
